@PGATourBrunch Second Round Coverage from Muirfield Village
Six Tied After 18 Holes at The Memorial
DUBLIN, Ohio - Cameron Young, who entered the week with Top-3 finishes in his last three starts, has the most Top-fives on Tour this season without a win (5). He is currently among six players tied after 18 holes at The Memorial. That marks the most in tournament history (previously: 4, 1997, 1998).
With an opening 5-under (67), Cameron Smith recorded his lowest score in 17 rounds at the Memorial Tournament. It marks the second time he has posted a sub-par score in his seventh start in the event (previously: 71/R2/2017). Smith has made the cut in the event twice (2017, 2020).
Will Zalatoris (T-7) at (68), has two playoff losses and four additional Top-10s on the season, is one stroke off the lead. He missed cut in only other start at the Memorial Tournament (MC/2018).
In first start since the 2022 Masters Tournament and left wrist surgery in April, 2018 Memorial Tournament winner Bryson DeChambeau opened with a 4-over (76) while Harris English played for the first time since the 2022 Sony Open in Hawaii and hip surgery in February, and posted a 5-over (77).
Chad Ramey withdrew after the first round (back injury).
2014 Memorial Tournament winner Hideki Matsuyama was disqualified for using a non-conforming club (Rule 4.1a). The equipment rules specify what is not allowed (4.c3). Matsuyama apparently applied a substance to his 3-wood club head.
